TIP TO ABSOLUTE TRUTH SEEKERS!
Schools don’t teach absolute truths, they instead give you the tools and knowledge to discover them and this is a choice each and every individual has to make on his/her own, because schools don’t make choices for you, the individual does!
This is a self-evident truth validated with empirical evidence because every human being on planet earth has the innate biological mechanism called “the ability to choose” and this is an absolute truth
You are not God so cannot claim to know absolute truth. Nobody on Earth can. The best we could ever come up with would be a close approximation.

Oh by the way, if a God exists, free will does not. Unless you want to violate your own rule of non-contradiction.

Again.

I believe it was Washou who asked where his kitten was after it had passed on
Kanzi and Panbanisha, often asked to be taken for a walk or a particular food or drink.
These are questions, they may not be profound questions but they are what matters to an ape.
It was Koko and she did not ask , she was told. Koko cried. The cat's name was AllBall.

I mentioned adoption.
I don't think you understand the meaning of that( Adoption). It is not how far but how well. The English carried the day.
When you post something comprehensible perhaps it will be understood.

And if you paid attention I never denied absolute truth. I merely pointed out that you have no idea what it is. Hence why you are not God, and hence why your entire premise is flawed.
Of course we both already know this, which is why you avoided addressing my actual posts in favour of demanding we take your baseless philosophical claims seriously. Great thing about reality is that reality is still real even when you think otherwise.
One absolute truth in nature, is that love exists.

The evidence is very clear. Humans were all made from the dust or soil of the earth, while the spirit that makes us to dream is God's breathe of life.
The spirit must return to God for judgement, while the flesh will end up as soil.
Rationality in the highest order.

And finally, God is not man( human), he is the creator of the universe. There is nothing he can do.

That is an insult to intelligence, particularly when the proof of your lies to your god are in the very posts you make. Honey don’t make the mistake that we are all as stupid and childish as you,
Go on!
Non stop!
If insulting some one is one of your password, good for you.
You are indeed clueless. I ask again, is English French?
Even though English has some or several French words, does that makes English to be French? NO!
Just think instead of your rantings.

no, there is not one shred of evidence to suggest that. dreaming is just the subconscious brain at work, proven fact.

You give the impression that English was magiced up in England, not so, it is a hybrid language derived from French and several other languages as I have already shown you.
You seem to be contradicting your own posts here. Look at the roots of those synonyms, see from which languages they derived.
<quoted text>
May I suggest you look up the meaning of unique, your ignorance is letting you down here.
The English language comprises of a fair percentage of words derived from other languages as I have already proved.
As for unique to England, what language do they speak in Scotland? Wales? Ireland? IOM?, Jersey? Much of Canada, Most of America, Australia, South Africa, India and the other 50 odd Sovereign states and 27 non sovereign principalities that have English as their primary language.
The more you argue this point of you’re the deeper in the mire you get.
Do you normally think with your eyes closed?
All languages has one or more influences with one another.
French( France), Spanish( Spain), Portuguese( Portugal), all has/ had influences from Latin, but the origin of those languages took place in those respective places and not Rome( Italy). Just admit your ignorance and think with both eyes opened.

Get a clue on the meaning of the word, " adoption ".
Most of these nations including yours, adopted English because of the English( people of England's influences).

Total Charles garbage. The default state of humanity is atheism, a person is born not believing in a god, belief in a god, any god, depending on where you were born and who your parents are is an indoctrinated behaviour.
You are the one who is abnormal, you differ from the default state.
P.S. again E=MC^2 shows that the god described in KJV Revelation 19:6 cannot exists in this universe.
P.P.S You said it yourself,“evolved”(I think you meant ‘evolve’ but never mind) Just because you do not understand evolution does not mean that evolution does not happen, all it means is that you don’t understand.
This clown is indeed very sick. Must you resort to insults all the time?
Any way, a typical nature of a loser.
